Since the sixth edition of the APA Style Guide was published in July, faculty and librarians noticed pages of errors and inconsistencies. Most errors appear in the sample papers and citations. APA recently changed its position that it would not replace copies of the first printing with copies of the corrected second printing. If you, or your students, have purchased a paperback copy of the first printing, APA will send you, free of charge, a copy of the second printing. Contact the APA’s service center (firstname.lastname@example.org ) to submit your request between November 2 and December 15.
If you want to view corrected copies, just stop by the library – we have manually corrected copies on reserve and at the reference desk. Our online style guide for APA, http://www.fairfield.edu/library/libgd_apacitations.html, is also correct. To view the corrected pages online, visit http://www.apastyle.org/ and click on “Corrections to the First Printing.”
